Divorce Alternatives

Exploring Divorce Alternatives

Divorce litigation is stressful, invasive, and expensive; but it does not always have to be. When parties are able to reach an agreement, it allows them to control the outcome as opposed to leaving it in the hands of the Court.

We are experienced divorce lawyers who can help you explore alternatives to divorce and custody litigation.

Whether the divorce was expected or a complete surprise, we can help you get past the emotions to arrive at a fair and practical agreement.

Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, represents women and men in the greater Philadelphia area including the counties of Montgomery, Delaware and Bucks . To discuss out-of-court resolution of your family law matters at one of our convenient offices in Norristown and Philadelphia, contact us today for a free consultation.

Out-Of-Court Agreements Attorney Serving Philadelphia and Montgomery County

We practice exclusively in family law, and in our experience, litigation has its time and place but everyone benefits when disputes can be settled out of court. It is better to have a settlement you can live with than a court order you are stuck with.

Sometimes litigation cannot be avoided, but you owe it to yourself and your children to explore the alternatives:

  • Legal separation — Pennsylvania does not recognize formal legal separation. However, if you are living apart but do not wish to divorce, we can draft a separation agreement or property settlement agreement.
  • Divorce settlements (uncontested divorce) — If you are not fighting over custody or a large estate, we can help you figure out the financials and move on.
  • Earnest negotiation — With an attorney there to advise, you can find middle ground and creative solutions without compromising what is most important.
  • Pretrial settlement conferences — Faced with the grim reality of an impending trial, many divorcing couples are able to break the impasse.
